February's gallery hop features:
"Signs of Reappropriation" by Kader Attia
Red Gallery, 201 E. Broughton St.
Feb. 13-March 22
"Signs of Reappropriation" features a site-specific installation of Attia's 2007 "Untitled (Skyline)" series and a newly commissioned body of photographs that he printed during a brief residency at SCAD-Atlanta.
"Mortality's Alchemist" by Angelo Filomeno
Pinnacle Gallery, 320 E. Liberty St.
Jan. 7-March 15
Artist gallery talk, 3 p.m., Feb. 13
"Mortality's Alchemist" features a series of embroidered silk shantung panels together with three-dimensional works intricately fashioned from glass, crystals, feathers and steel. Filomeno's works depict decadent Baroque, Medieval and Renaissance imagery infused with themes of life, death, sexuality, and symbols of vanitas.
"Everything Matters" by Deborah Poynton
Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 322 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Artist gallery talk, 5 p.m., Feb. 13
Jan. 20-Feb. 13
South African artist Deborah Poynton's psychologically powerful paintings will be on view for her first solo exhibition in Savannah. Her paintings command the exhibition spaces in a unique capacity with an enigmatic balance between the monumentality of her canvases and the sensitivity in which she portrays the human form.
Working Class Studio Open House
235 W. Boundary St.
In conjunction with the Feb. 13 gallery hop, Working Class Studio will host an open house. The studio will be open to the public, featuring live student demonstrations, refreshments and Working Class Studio products available for sale.
ShopSCAD presents Nathan Durfee
ShopSCAD, 340 Bull St.
Nathan Durfee (B.F.A., illustration, 2005) takes his art in a unique, wholly personalized direction. His ability to create both conventional and alternative realities allows him to push and pull his work from the realistic to the abstract with imaginative skill. His fanciful, often abstract subjects share an organic connection with his informal school-day sketching.
"Over the Hills and Far Away" by Michelle Repici
Alexander Gallery, 668 Indian St.
M.F.A. painting candidate Michelle Repici depicts beautifully dressed children inhabiting collage-like storybook landscapes. The quiet repose of the young figures demonstrates a contemplative state that elevates a sense of their mental capacity far beyond their years.
